Politics: Progressive Views From An LA Dude

politics, Progressive Ideas

What is wrong with the world today? Why is there such a push against immigrants? All the people I compete with speak only english, or english and another language which makes it even more competitive. But the best person should get the job right? Go somewhere where your skills are needed or learn something new. If it’s not helping humanity become healthier, safer, or help us spend less on gas, then sorry you need to rethink your skill set.

Evolution speaks volumes. If a line work is diminishing for a new industry or technology, either learn the new skill and adapt or face extinction. In America you can educate yourself and elevate yourself. Easier said than done, I know. But people forget of something called a junior college that was created to help people in the community obtain college level courses. Yes there is money involved, and yes there is a time commitment to learning, but are you too busy to put in the time to improve your life?

I’ve noticed the country get in an uproar since the crash of 2008. Since the financial and economic sanity of this country took a hit it brought in a wave of hatred. Listen, when money is not coming in, the inner animal and fear comes out. Racial tolerance decreases, domestic violence increase, violent acts and robberies increase, and the rest goes on.

I believe in equality for everyone, doesn’t matter race, gender, or sexual preference. My woman bosses have been the best respected even higher than their male counter parts. Not a diss against us dudes, but you have to give credit where credit is due. If you experience fear or feel uncomfortable around people who are not like you, then the solution is simple. It’s not easy to accept everyone overnight, I know. But you can begin the process just be getting to know people. Then you will see that we are all humans with different experiences and different tolerances and that is A-OK.

The U.S. is not a one religion nation. It is a country with the choice given to every individual to choose their own religion and faith so long as it does not promote hate and violence. What’s my faith? Well, I follow more along the lines of the Daoist way of life but also integrate philosophies from confucious, aristoltle, and many past philosophers. New age philosophy of Wayne dyer, Louise Hay, even Helen Keller. You can learn so much in life from people who have blasted through adversity and reached success in whatever facet of life important to them. That’s what I’m all about. Hey, you’re part of an organized religion that’s been around for thousands of years, fantastic.  I respect your beliefs and wish you the best.

10 Things To Do Before The Political Uproar Gets You Down

USA Political Words

I wanted to stay away from the issue of politics but it has been hard not to show some kind of concern for our political state.

Whether or not you’re a fan of the current administration, there are many issues up for debate and people on both sides of the coin. In America everyone has a right to a view point and the right to discuss like civilized individuals instead of shouting and fighting like brutes, I think 😐 …But you need to be in the right state of mind to discuss your viewpoint without losing poise. So here is a checklist for things that you can do before jumping into the political upheaval and running around in an uproar.

  1. Did you workout?

    Can you believe it? They called me crazy!

    Easy question. Did I workout today? Yes. Picked up some 10 lbs dumb bells and lifted them over my head. Very light start just to get me ready for my lunch time workout. I’m back into my tai chi practice. Anger is energy and needs to be put to use in some way shape or form. The evidence between mood and exercise is mounting and evident so don’t just brush it under the rug. With healthcare on the fritz it seems like the more you can do to take care of yourself, the better.

  2. Did you save any money or pay off a bill today?
    Saving Money, One Dollar
    Every dollar counts…except this one in the picture. It isn’t real.

    Who doesn’t have money problems? The range of what we experience may be different, but one thing remains the same: If you ignore your finances eventually you’ll be in a situation where it’s the only thing on your mind. President Who??? It’s important to save for a rainy day. Because a rainy day could turn into a rainy week, or month, or even years. The Congressional Budget Office just release a report stating that the national debt is going to be 150% of the GDP, or Gross Domestic Product. What does that mean? Um.. not good, not good at all. Ultimately, as I’m becoming wiser I coming into the realization that I can take hold of my future financial security by planning ahead and learning from my past money mistakes. Have you ever read The Millionaire Next Door?

  3. I have Time.
    I Quiet.
    I Meditate.

    Relax, that is not a tree, you are the tree, said the wise one…

  4. Begin identifying Job skills that will be needed in 5 years from now, 10 years from now, 20 years. Where do you want to be 5, 10, 20 years from now?
    Either adapt or get left behind with the smoke...
    I’m evolving by the minute…Muahahaha!

  5. Are you up to date on your blood work? Any lingering health concerns? You should have healthcare coverage, use it!

  6. Mathboard, arithmatics
    Sharpen your skills and they will sharpen you! Chop Chop!

    Enroll in a history class, a political science class, a math class! I’m going to enroll in community college to strengthen my mathematical base and biological sciences. What ever happened to the concept of becoming a better person? Of growing not just because the immediate opportunity was there, but because you knew it would lead you to becoming more valuable in the world period, in all angles?

  7. Go Volunteer! Now is a great time to put your time and energy into causes that you support.
    Hands Volunteer
    We need hands! All shapes, sizes and colors!

  8. Have you cleaned up your room yet? Have a clean car? What about the laundry. Clean your house, clean your life!
    Yeah um.. The maid just quit.

  9. Spend time with people. Spend time with your immediate family and enjoy the times together. Spend time with friends and exchange thoughts and ideas. Go meet people from all backgrounds and try to gain as much wisdom as you can.

    Whoooo is this family?

  10. Put your anger to action. Build a community organization. Start working on the formulation of that product you’ve been thinking about.Political change requires action!

What is the premise to take away from this? Take care of your own backyard and it will make you stronger. You’ll find answers, you’ll find connections, you’ll find a way to solve your problems and the rest of our problems rationally.
